Fail2Ban and Nginx

Posted January 24, 2014 4.6k views
Hello there!! After some reading about Fail2Ban application, i've noticed that it was mainly developed for using Apache logs. Also, here at the DO articles i see that it seems that fail2ban works properly with nginx. I can't asure this, so i would like your opinions =) I have Nginx and Fail2ban installed, should i do any additional configuration for it to work well? Or am i all wrong and should leave fail2ban as it is? xD

You will need to edit fail2ban's config file and point the appropriate directive to nginx's access log file.
